Why do I always do this every time the topic is mom and father comes up? “
Gong Myung looked surprised, and asked his younger brother if he was crying. “No, no,” Doyoung replied, though it was clear from his voice that he was very emotional. “It’s just that when I was young, I was very immature, and doing what I wanted to do, I realize now that I’m getting older so you and our parents are always trying to understand me. Lately, just thinking about it makes me feel very sorry and grateful. “
In the end, Gong Myung cries first. “Doyoung,” he said to his brother after wiping his tears. “Let’s hang up, this is not working!”
